    OK guys, tell your story about the the time you froze your tongue or? to something when it's this damn cold.

    When I was a teenager I was cleaning out the fridge and it had the evap coils exposed in the fridge. My hand was wet and I accidently touched the coils with the back of my hand. It immeditaly stuck fast. I was stuck for 10 min. until I figured out I could throw water on it, My cleaning bucket was beside me. I had severe frostbite on my hand.

    I still have marks on my hand, 17 years later.

    The other night I was watching that movie again, and the part with the kid and his tongue on the flagpole.
    That has to be one of the best X-Mas movies ever.
    Along with that sappy Jimmy Stewart one.

    I lost a couple of fingerprints on a metal shelf in a -20Ί walk in a few years back.

    On a ski trip on a -4Ί day with a -20Ί windchill one of our female companions tore a part of her lip off when she put a quarter in her mouth to use for the ski pole locks.

    Same trip, after about 4 hours of constant skiing because the slopes were nearly empty I went to the lodge to get food, drink and the feeling back in some parts of my body. When I went to take off my full face mask stocking cap it was frozen to my beard with about an inch of solid ice from my breathing through it.

    One time I was working on a metal roof up here in Vermont. -22°F air temperature. I had to take a whizz. So I took the monster out and.......oh, you guys wouldn't believe me anyways.

    A Christmas Story!!!

    Did you see the part after the movie about how they made his tongue look stuck to the pole? It was considered trick photography at that time. They put a hole in the pole and had a vacuum cleaner sucking on the pole. This way he could lean back without his tongue moving away from the hole in the pole and give it a realistic effect.

    Your poor planning does not constitute an emergency on my part!!!!
